Cloud is Tyler Taormina, a musician and filmmaker from Long Island, NY. His autumnal toned Comfort Songs LP was released on Audio Antihero Records to great acclaim in 2013.
Having relocated to Los Angeles, he issued his Zen Summer album in 2015 on Paper Trail Records, an altogether more hopeful and dreamy collection of songs. Having issued two very different albums in two very different periods of his life, Taormina returned with the Plays with Fire LP on March 9th 2018, nine songs of quiet optimism and greying nostalgia. In June 2018, Tyler Taormina announced "Plays with Fire" would be the final Cloud album and 34 artists came together for The Desperation Club - A Cloud Tribute Compilation in response.
